The Vatican and the Order of Malta sign postal services convention

Rome, 24/06/2008 


The agreement with which the Vatican City State recognises the full validity of stamps issued by the Order of Malta was signed in the Vatican today, 24 June.

Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo, President of the Governorate, and Jean-Pierre Mazery, Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, signed the convention that extends the centuries-old relationship between the Order of Malta and the Vatican to postal services.

In November, two commemorative stamps will be issued: the Order of Malta will issue a stamp bearing the Vatican City State coat-of-arms in colour, whereas the Vatican City will issue a stamp depicting the Sovereign Order’s emblem.

The Vatican City State convention is the 53rd country with which the Sovereign Order has signed agreements for the circulation of mail bearing its stamps.
